Journey to Alaska and the Pacific Northwest



TO ENQUIRE NOW          



Have you always wanted to cruise through the glassy, glacial fjords of Alaska or maybe you want to revisit this amazing destination?Our talented journey designers at Cruise Express have crafted a unique new adventure that pairs the majesty of Alaska with some of the world’s top wine regions in California and Oregon and nostalgic trips aboard two vintage trains on America’s west coast. The result is an incredible feast for the senses - a seamless string of splendours from the icefields of Alaska to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

 

Hosted by Cruise Express the whole way, you’ll begin your holiday in Anchorage, Alaska, in late June when the sun doesn’t set until just before midnight and rises again just four hours later, with enough light in between to read a book. You'll then board the glimmering, 2140-guest Celebrity Millennium for a spectacular, 7-night cruise south to Vancouver via the mighty glaciers, snowy peaks, frontier gold rush towns and America’s largest fir forests - brimming with wildlife - that have made Alaska a magnet for nature lovers.

 

After a night in beautiful Vancouver, we journey on to Seattle for a spectacular dinner of Pacific Northwest cuisine atop the famous Space Needle and a visit to the mind-boggling Boeing aircraft factory - the world’s largest building. Next we sample some of the 500 wineries of Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine region, acclaimed for its exquisite Pinot Noir. See the awe-inspiring Mt St Helens volcano and the towering, icy cascade of Multnomah Falls before boarding your private heritage train, California Zephyr - the ‘Silver Lady’ - for an overnight trip from Portland south to San Francisco. Built in the 1940s, the Zephyr boasts gracious sleeping, dining and lounge cars as well as its classic, glass-topped 'Vista Dome', so you can relax in comfort, watch the scenery drift by and be transported back to a time when rail travel was romantic and elegant.

 

In San Francisco, see the world’s most famous bridge  - the Golden Gate - and enjoy a ferry trip across the spectacular harbour to join another vintage rail trip - the Napa Valley Wine Train - for a three-hour gourmet lunch journey through the world-famous Napa Valley wine region - coveted for its prized Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Aboard lovingly restored rail carriages, you’ll wine and dine in the lounge and dining cars, drinking in the scenery of quaint villages and endless, sun-kissed vines.   

 

It's then time to fly back home after a diverse, experience-filled journey from north to south. All aboard for the holiday of a lifetime!

A favourite of many holiday makers, Celebrity Millennium was "Solsticized" in May of 2012 and emerged with many award-winning Solstice® Class features. She's been renewed with spa-inspired AquaClass® staterooms, the AquaClass signature restaurant, Blu, and the addition of verandas to her chic Celebrity Suites. We can't think of a better way to experience the exotic beauty of Asia than aboard Celebrity Millennium. Out of the ordinary? Definitely.
